Lots of american style restaurants and mostly clothing and souvenir shops. Big Ferris wheel serves as a landmark of this place. There’s cinema theatre next to AEON mall. Generally, worth visiting when rains or to eat something different than local, Japanese cuisine.

We were staying at the nearby Beach Tower Okinawa and came here nearly every night for dinner and dessert! Lots of nice food options and a very pleasant atmosphere.
